A quick review of 2014:
2014 was a good year for me in terms of my photography development. My editing style has changed a bit, especially my sunsets/sunrises and my black and white editing, I’m really liking the dramatic effect I’m applying to my black and whites at the moment and I have found myself shooting a lot more black and white in 2014 than I thought I would.
Some of the highlights from 2014 for me were being invited to exhibit some of my images at a gallery in London (which I declined as I felt I’m not quite at that level), Having images chosen for Images Of The Month in various competitions and two images in the running for Image Of The Year in one, Being featured on Photofocus, selling images to art collectors, but the biggest highlight for me was shooting my first wedding…what an eye opener and challenging experience that was, and I can’t wait to do it again in 2015.
So to finish off my 2014 images I headed out with my new lens, a Sigma 17-35mm F2.8…which I have to be honest I need to get used to!!! I headed out to get the nice warm hues of the sunrise over Campbeltown Loch, so I got into position, setup and manually focused as I always do, however I messed up the infinity focus point on the lens so the first few images were a bit soft but I managed to save one of them, but don’t zoom in too close lol.
The main purpose of this lens was for Astrophotography, so here’s hoping that 2015 you’ll be seeing some more Milky Way shots and attempts at Star trails.
Entered into Nadia Merrill’s Photo Challenge Something New seeing as I was experimenting with the ‘new’ lens for this image.
